That solder will work just fine with silver just the cardas stuff will work better just from experience.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/200879856591?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649  This seller sells small lengths at what I think is a reasonable price.  

 

Sorry about the strippers. I have used them before and for $10 I think that they where an amazing deal.  Of course they won't compete with $50 or $100 strippers but still its a good deal for $10.  In my opinion that is.  

Maybe I'm doing something wrong? It just took out a lot of the copper wire. Didn't make me happy.

 

Also, do you guys have any 2.5mm plugs you can recommend? And for braiding, I saw this octagon shaped thing a while ago that helped with braiding and kind of guiding you through it. Anyone know what I saw?

Maybe I'll get some.. I'll see which I like better!

 

Edit: Got 10 ft. Was only $5.95 and thought why not, and free shipping!

http://www.redco.com/Mini-3-5mm-2-5mm-Connectors/ one of the neutrik ones :D.  Sorry if I keep going back to redco but they honestly have the best prices around and neutrik makes some very very high quality stuff for a very good price.  

 

Um for thin wire with a lot of very very thin strands I suggest you cut the insulation with your wire strippers and then pull off the insulation by hand.  Its what I had to do with my silver wire with a million small strands.

There is no Neutrik 2.5mm there. I got the Canare one, and I don't like it at all..

2.5mm. I'm building a HD558 cable for my friend. And the plug that goes into the HD558 is a 2.5mm.

Just bought this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006BHCFO/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I'm highly expecting returning it. Highly. I just want to see if its really worth it.

Well again for 2.50 its a good deal.  Not the best thing on the face of the planet but a good deal.  It is the same orientation as a 3.5mm jack.  So the tip is left the middle band is right and the last band is ground.
